Clearing Action on S&W 1000 Shotgun

A neighbor has a number of guns to sell after her husband's recent death (this is becoming a pattern).  I went over today, and I could not figure out how to clear the action on a Smith & Wesson 1000 semiauto shotgun.  (Probably unloaded, but probably is not enough for a fun.)  The operating lever would not move and there did not seem to be a safety preventing motion.  Nor can I find instructions on the web,..

I think you want carrier release button on front left of trigger guard.
